Sharing video is likely to double your audience. 84% of people say that they’ve been convinced to buy a product or service by watching a brand’s video.
Let's explore three different ways your small business can turn a blog post into a high-ranking video that can engage more viewers than the original post!
Easy ways to market your small business through video
1. Convert your blog into a high-ranking video
Converting a blog into a high-ranking video is an easy task. With the assistance of an in-browser screen recorder and microphone, you’ll be posting your new video in no time.
Write my X and 1Day2Write marketing writer, Lea John says “Look at your blog post and extract the most important information and create a script with it. Then find some royalty-free stock footage that vaguely represents what you’re saying and voice over it, easy peasy”.
Basically, all you need to do is copy and paste your blog content into an online video editor like Clipchamp or create a PowerPoint presentation using PowerPoint templates, add some groovy transitions, your business logos and on-brand royalty-free stock images and video. Record your own voice over for free or employe paid talent. It’s as simple as that.
Manually converting your blog into a high-ranking video can be quite time-consuming. Let’s explore some alternatives to save your small business valuable time.
2. Hire a freelancer to convert your blog into a video
Small business owners are very busy people. If you don’t have the time to convert your blog into a high-ranking video yourself, don’t panic. Finding and employing a freelancer can help you save time and take the stress out of dreaded tasks.
You don’t want to just employ the first freelancer you see on a website. Be sure to check out their ratings and reviews to gain an insight into their work ethic, experience and if they’re the right match for your brand’s tone of voice. Inquire how much they will charge per hour and per video. You might like the sound of a freelancer, but they might not fit into your small business budget.
Business blogger at Origin Writings and Brit Student, Don James says “Remember that if you’re not satisfied with the work you’ve gotten from a freelancer, you can ask them to revise it as many times as you want until you’re satisfied with the result.”
3. Use an online video editor tool
